It might seem hard to fathom in a post-djent era, but once upon a time, it was unthinkable to mix progressive metal and technical death metal, two decidedly distinct subgenres of heavy metal whose disparate fan bases overlapped little, if at all. The pioneering “extreme progressive metal” group INTO ETERNITY, however, showed that it was not only possible, but inconceivable that no one had done so sooner. Bridging the gap between Death and Dream Theater, the influential Canadian band – founded by guitarist Tim Roth – paved the way for scores of today's genre-agnostic acts while also introducing one of metal's most celebrated vocalists. Following the success of the band's acclaimed 2018 comeback album “The Sirens,” M-Theory Audio is proud to honor INTO ETERNITY's continued legacy with the first-ever vinyl release of the band's 2008 concept album “The Incurable Tragedy,” the group's second recording with dynamic vocalist Stu Block (now in Iced Earth). The record was written after three years of nonstop touring that saw the band share the stage with many of metal's A-list acts, including Megadeth, Lamb of God, Opeth, Dream Theater, Arch Enemy, Overkill and Symphony X. On paper, things couldn't have seemed better – but over a three-month span in late 2006, cancer claimed the lives of Roth's father and two best friends, events which led to the most emotionally charged recording of the band's career. Commemorating its cancer theme, the album will be released on limited-edition (300 copies) lavender-colored vinyl. True extreme music pioneers, INTO ETERNITY showed the world just how limitless metal could be – and also how glorious it could sound in the process.
